Washing instructions for sheep/lambskins.
In case of lighter soiling: Vacuum, use a clothes rollar or hand dry after using a sponge and lukewarm water. Shake and air sheep/lambskins regularly for the best luster and shape, and it is better to do this on a day there is damp in the air. Do not subject the sheepskin to high temperatures or direct sunlight.
In the case of coarser soiling: Skins with a wool length of up to 35mm can be washed in the washing machine. Skins with full length wool should not be washed in the washing machine. Use a mild detergent (wool shampoo) with a ph-value of 3.5 – 5.5, which is free from ensymes, phosphates, peroxides, aliklies and bleaches. Coarser soiling on the skins should be soaked in cold water before washing. Wash in the washing machine and chose the wool program/30 degrees. Always use a lot of water. It is okay to use spin but avoid using the tumble dryer and absolutly no tumble drying with heat. Do not use bleach or conditioner. Sheep/lambskins should be hung up or dried flat in room temperature. Work, (drag and rub) the skin whilst still damp to keep the skin flexable. Do not iron. Sheepskins can even be dry cleaned by a specialist. Do not subject the sheepskin to high temperatures or direct sunlight.
